Apportionments are a strong Methodist tradition and we support communities both local and worldwide. We are a connectional denomination with missions and ministries directly impacting the lives of people in 136 countries. In light of the outcome of General Conference there have been a few persons who asked if they could give to Apportionments, but restrict their giving from supporting certain places or people.

The response is that churches who give to Apportionments cannot specify where they want their funds to go or not go. Apportionments support the entire Conference Budget as a whole and it is critical that we support all of the ministries of our Conference. Click here to view the Conference Budget.

Our Annual Conference does however receive second-mile or designated giving through the Advance Funds. The Advance is an accountable, designated giving arm of The United Methodist Church that ensures 100 percent of each gift reaches its intended ministry.
